A memo from my building's Home Owners Association Board of Directors:
My working-class neighbors will appreciate the consideration!
Yeah, geez. Show some respect for the poor bastards who still have to erect things at night for a living, you millionaire bastard.
We know what you do for a living... you make too much noise! Look, we've even got police records of how much of a trouble-maker you are about making noise!
And he's a litterbug! Noise and litter, it's like he thinks he runs a nightclub or something.
And as one, the London geek-goth fraternity double-checked the journal name to see just who's journal they were reading...
Goddamnn rich yuppie types, annoying the neighbours with their jet engines and plasma cutters.
Heh, "keep your entertaining inside your unit".
#1 its not the "working-class" that makes any noise?#2 do you live next to a coal mine?#3 .. damn that phrase is condescending sounding either way
Presumably, that means "of course, you don't have to give a damn about your more moneyed neighbors who have just moved in because the neighborhood was 'cool' only to find out that 'cool'=='noisy after dark'."
Except of course it doesn't. Goddamn that is condenscending.
I think the detail you're missing here is that by "neighbors" they mean "other people who live in the same condo building I do."
I realize that "working class" is a vague term, but I think that you're probably out of the running if you can afford a half million dollar studio apartment.
Hokay, here's where I get confused.
"Studio apartment" to me means bed / kitchen / living area in the same room, with a seperate room for a toilet/bath if you're lucky. It's an upper-class bedsitter, basically. It's where international students with rich parents and divorced men trying to be bachelors again live.
I presume, at $500,000US a pot, it means something different where you are?
No, that's exactly what it means. Except scale the whole thing up by 2-3x, give it slightly higher ceilings, and call it a "live-work loft". Ka-ching!
Obviously you need to move the MN with rzr_grl!
If you have a high degree of volume control during the daytime, don't forget to have less control as the hour gets late.
Well, you do own means of production.
Who can be "working class" and actually own property in San Francisco?!
And it's not getting any better.
...and your upper-class neighbors will fucking hate you no matter what, you poor bastard!
...um, a car is a belonging, is it not? do they only allow rental cars there?
i think the letter was talking about belongings more along the line of slaves, not cars. these people are rich, they have seperate houses for their cars to live in.
"Erections" enabled my engirsh detector then the "working-class neighbors" focus put me in a total China mode. Enjoy the Fourteen Ways to Die in Shanghai.
